Recycled TV Scripts

Reuse old TV show scripts.

Instead of coming up with entirely new scripts for what turn out to be old ideas anyway, why not just recycle old shows? Take a script from, say, Beverly Hills 90210. Change all the character names and the location, but leave all the dialog the same. Could be used in any genre, I think. The fun would be to do this, but not publicize it and then see if anyone notices.

       Either you've read "easy story writing" (link) and thought it was ironic to copy that idea and replace "story" with "tv show" (which is actually quite clever in a way) and you didn't worry about the fact that "easy story writing" was fishboned to hell and back, or else you've just thought up something that people have been doing since Shakespeare and thought it was your own idea. Which is stupid.

       Either you've viewed "easy story writing" (URL) and considered it to be ironic to pagiarize that concept and substitute "story" with "tv show" (which is in fact rather ingenious in a fashion) and you weren't concerned by the fact that "easy story writing" was criticized to Hull and back, or alternatively you've merely dreamt up something that folk have been doing since Aristotle and believed it was your own concept. Which is stupid.

       By the way, welcome to the halfbakery. We like recursive things here.

       I intended it more as a joke on the viewing public than an 'easy story writing' scheme. It would have to be done with the original writer's/producer's consent. In the end, it would be revealed as a hoax, if nobody figured it out.

       [Max] is my new irony idol.   

       Hmm, sarcasm idol, too.   

       "..criticised to Hull and back" vs. "...fishboned to Hell" - they're on the same bus line, right?

       baked to death. every story that is a story, punch a story that ain't a story. in some real way, they're all exactly the same.
